Clore Automotive introduces Model PL5100, a new heavy-duty 12/24-volt Fleet Wheel Charger, from SOLAR. The new charger features multiple charge rates from 15A to 100A to quickly and easily deliver a precise charging routine to vehicles of all shapes and sizes, from passenger vehicles to over-the-road trucks with an eight-battery configuration. It also features 425 Amp Engine Starting assistance to provide starting assistance to vehicles with a low battery(ies). Finally, it is approved for all-weather use to deliver outstanding charging performance in all service environments.
Service speed and bay turnover is the calling of the PRO-LOGIX PL5100, says the company. It features a 100A maximum charging rate, making quick work of even the four- and eight-battery packs found in Class 8 trucks and heavy-duty implements.
The PL5100 utilizes advanced microprocessor-controlled logic to precisely deliver a fully automatic charging routine designed to optimally charge and maintain each battery or battery pack serviced. The PL5100 features the ability to properly charge a wide variety of lead acid battery types, including conventional, AGM, spiral wound, start-stop, deep cycle and marine batteries – no matter the lead acid battery type installed in a vehicle, the PL5100 can deliver a proper, beneficial charge, according to Clore.
The PRO-LOGIX PL5100 adapts its approach based on the needs of each battery or battery pack it services. Such adaptations can include activating a soft-start mode on deeply discharged batteries, a battery repair mode on older/distressed batteries and temperature compensation when charging in extreme temperatures. It also incorporates numerous features to make charging safer for the operator and the vehicle/battery being charged, including over-voltage protection, reverse polarity protection, smart clamp technology and battery fault detection. Plus, with all-weather certification, it is versatile enough for use in all service environments.
